Foot Bone Injury Treatment Boulder City NV

Twenty-six bones, to be precise. Clearly, something very tricky is going on in the foot. Otherwise, we wouldn’t need so many distinct joints. Of course, we shouldn’t fall into the trap of thinking nature has intent.

"…the foot bone’s connected to the…"

The human body is fascinating, isn’t it? From the exterior, huge tracts of the body’s surface are quite bland. It’s almost like our bodies are composed of anatomical cities - seats of high activity - linked together by multi-lane highways. The head is one metropolis, with its concentration of sensory organs, not to mention the brain. The extremities are further cities. After the relative simplicity of the thigh and calf, the body suddenly divides into a tangle of bones in the foot.

Twenty-six bones, to be precise. Clearly, something very tricky is going on in the foot. Otherwise, we wouldn’t need so many distinct joints. Of course, we shouldn’t fall into the trap of thinking nature has intent. Evolution isn’t about perfection. Who knows? Maybe we’d be better served by simple hooves! But for whatever reason, we developed this intricate network of bones. It gives us advantages and disadvantages. Despite the foot’s ability to handle incredible loads and activity levels, twist it slightly out of alignment, and the fine bones that make up its structure can crack like weak kindling. More than one person has been surprised to discover that the sharp, painful pop they felt when they put their foot down the wrong way was actually a metatarsal fracturing. (Metatarsals - the finger-like bones that connect to our toes - can also be victims of stress fractures , an injury common to athletes.)

Then there is the heel bone. It’s quite impressive when you think about it: all the weight of your body is planted into the heel bone with every stride, and the only thing preventing that bone from becoming inflamed and damaged is a pad of fat and a sack of fluid called a bursa. Of course, sometimes this system breaks down, and heel pain is the result.

Like muscles, joints, tendons and nerves, bones can also suffer in the name of beauty. High heels can put pressure and stress on the foot’s bones. Look at an anatomy chart - at th...
